Executive programs

Our intensive programs have been designed to provide a grounding across the spectrum of security issues while building enduring personal networks.

These programs are an immersive experience that improves participants’ ability to meet whole-of-government and whole-of-nation policy needs.

The executive development programs are targeted at specific cohorts of national security professionals based on experience and seniority. The duration of courses builds from a week (introduction) to four weeks (SES) in length. To ensure balance and diversity of participation, there are sometimes limits to the number of officials an organisation can nominate for each iteration of a program.
